I understand. For most of the world, it's a common little phrase. But for people who have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome (or both), it's amazingly powerful, not to mention rare. Because you have an illness that's hard to 'prove', loved ones may secretly accuse you of hypochondria or laziness. You may be told 'it's all in your head'. Physicians can be even worse. ...more

Dr. Murphree has some great education in this book. As a Fibromyalgia Coach, I learned a ton that I'm sharing with my clients.

In my own case, I was already doing well with my fibro (off nine meds & living like I don't have fibro before I ever read the book), so I can't say this book helped me personally. I will say that the things he recommends were some of the things that I did to get well. So I felt validated in my own journey. =)

Dr. Murphree also does a lot of plugging of his own suppleme
Please don't sell your products on my time, Dr. Murphree. FAIL.

Very informational, but not a lot new learned. My friend let me borrow this book, and I have been reading it the past few weeks, hoping maybe I would learn something new to start the New Year off with some new advice or something new to try. The past few weeks have been rough for me, a lot of flare-ups, but I've tried most everything Dr. Murphee recommended. For me, it is based on sleep, if I can get deep good sleep I can usually be a functioning citizen of society, but once I do not, and I am c ...more

Dr. Murphree wrote a very informational book about fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. I am putting a lot of hope in his book and have set up a phone consult with him (he is in Alabama, I'm in California). To me it all makes sense, we are what we eat, and I would much rather treat my illness with vitamins/minerals exercise and an all natural approach. It was an easy to understand book with a ton of information.

Like so many with fibromyalgia, I keep looking for a cure. Am trying the jump start program recommended in this book. Fingers crossed.

“Sam’s Club, Trader Joe’s, and other discount stores that sell cheap supplements should not be your source for SAMe. Instead, look at GNC, local natural-food stores, or the Internet. You get what you pay for, and cheap SAMe doesn’t work. If the SAMe you’ve tried in the past wasn’t effective, don’t give up; try a different brand, preferably one recommended by a functional medicine doctor. SAMe is highly unstable and needs to be enteric coated and kept in a moderate-temperature storage facility. To take SAMe, start with 400 mg. on an empty stomach (thirty minutes before or ninety minutes after eating). If you don’t see an improvement in your mental and physical energy, increase your dose by 400 mg. each day—up to 1,200 mg.—until you do. I find it is best to take SAMe all at once, thirty minutes before breakfast. The method allows you to get a substantial morning boost that will often last through the day. You can take SAMe in divided doses if needed, but always on an empty stomach. Don’t take it past 3:00 p.m., as it may interfere with your sleep.” 0 likes
